T-Mobile goes truly unlimited in Europe

T-Mobile goes truly unlimited in Europe T-Mobile has started a new unlimited plan in Europe, a move that will likely cause other mobile providers to rethink their own packages.
The deal, which costs 41 a month with two-year contract, will include unlimited calls, texts and data.

Making the plan even more notable, is there is no "fair use policy" in effect either, like T-Mobile US has, meaning unlimited really is unlimited.

T-Mobile's entire catalog is available, and that includes the iPhone, Blackberrys and Android smartphones, among others.

Says the company: "Over the past two years we have seen a rise in mobile internet use of over 250%, which reflects the consumer trend of being 'always on' wherever they are. However, consumers also want to retain a more personal level of communication by calling or sending a text."

Finally, the icing on the cake is the phones can be used for free tethering, as well, making the new "Full Monty" plan likely the best smartphone plan available on the planet.

I will answer your question with another question.........

"Why was the US the primary factor in the financial decline of the rest of the world??"

Greed baby, GREED!


I'd bet the European "truly unlimited" is going to be the norm as soon it will be for T-Mobile US too. There is no reason other than greed to prevent them from doing so. Infrastructure is able to handle it, there is no tangible loss by allowing "truly unlimited" and no one will see much of a difference.

Because of greed & contracts. To get out of a CONtract costs money. It depends on how much time you have left & your needs whether or not it's worth it to break it.
